Horse Manure and Shavings – Composting

Q: I can get horse manure and shavings from the stalls at a horse farm. Is there any special way to compost this mixture?

A: Basically you just pile it up until it decomposes enough for the shavings to disappear. If smells “earthy” and not like ammonia it can safely be used as a soil amendment in a garden or landscape.
